Boum-Percussion

Biography

The Boum-Percussion Ensemble is one of the most extraordinary of its kind nowadays. The classically trained percussionists Kai Strobel, Marc Strobel, and Lorenz Behringer combine their educational background with elements of other cultures and a broad variety of music genres. Bridging gaps between the European orchestral percussion, Latin-American and Asian folk instruments adds another refreshing layer to their performance. The combination of these influences with conventional techniques and reimagining in a universal context forms the unique tonal language of „Boum“. The musicians draw their artistic approach from versatile sources. Valuable experiences based on engagements in the classical orchestra scene as well as solo work within the contemporary percussion scene have enriched their artistry. These include the Berliner Philharmonic Orchestra, the Berlin State Chapel, the State Opera Stuttgart as well as the Orchestra of the National Theatre Mannheim and Solo concerts with the Lübeck Philharmonics, the Asko/Schönberg Orchestra in Amsterdam, the State Chapel Orchestra of St. Petersburg, the Musical Olympus Festival, participating in the Salzburger Festspiele and many more. The Ensemble is very much involved in sharing their knowledge with the talented younger generation. In addition to multiple concerts for children, they teach within the frame of Musical Festivals in Italy, Austria, Croatia, Germany, Portugal, and the Netherlands regularly.
